Komori’s Customer Open House a Success, Demonstrates Sustainability
ROLLING MEADOWS, IL—October 4, 2010—Komori America hosted 300 guests and print vendor partners at an open house held on Saturday at its facility here. The event showcased the company’s commitment to sustainability by presenting technology that supports press efficiency and reduced waste.
Attendees were greeted with a live performance by Japanese drummers followed by a welcome from Kosh Miyao, president and COO of Komori America. After dinner Komori Corp.’s President and CEO Yoshiharu Komori spoke to the group, highlighting the company's continued commitment to the global print market by providing customers with the solutions that meet the changing demands of the marketplace and a dedication to new product development that supports the power of print.
Of great interest to attendees was a demonstration of Komori’s new KH-UV (Komori High Performance UV) drying system. Showcased on the LS 840P press, KH-UV utilizes 75 percent less energy than other UV systems and has benefits for two-sided printing—delivering mark-free, bindery ready sheets.
Additionally, printers were shown how the Lithrone S series presses reduce makeready and waste with the ability to achieve stable color in just 20 sheets.
“Our goal this year has been to invest in activities that establish productive, one-on-one interaction with customers and this Open House was a great opportunity to do that. We’re extremely pleased with the results,” said Susan Baines, director of marketing for Komori America.
Miyao added, “The success of the day shows that customers are interested in improving efficiency in their operations, and the products and solutions our guests saw during our demonstrations were definitely of interest. Add the fact that these new technologies are also ecologically responsible, and we believe we have the best solutions on the market. The well-received demos, coupled with an evening of dinner and entertainment, clearly allowed us to achieve our goal of showcasing our latest developments while spending enjoyable time with our customers in the process.”
